Here’s what I love right now: Chorizo! I feel like it’s an exclamation, potentially akin to cheers before downing tequila… ahem… Anyway, what I love about it is that it’s got a kick and adds such a depth of flavour to dishes. I particularly love adding it to pasta at the moment, it’s great for warmth in winter and combining it with lots of beautiful colours is much needed on these dark, cold days.


Chorizo! Pasta

3 chorizo sausages, roughly chopped

1 large brown onion, diced

3 cloves of garlic, crushed

1 red capsicum, cut into strips

200g frozen spinach

2 cans of crushed tomatoes

1 tsp smokey paprika

1/2 tsp chili flakes (or less if you want!)

1 tsp sugar

400g pasta shapes

Heat a small amount of oil in a frypan, when hot, add chorizo and fry until lightly browned and crispy, remove from the pan. Put a large pan of water on high heat and bring to a boil, this is for the pasta. Add onion to the frypan and cook until soft, add the capsicum and garlic and fry for 30 secs. Add tomatoes, chorizo and spinach, bring to a boil then reduce to a simmer for 10 mins. When your large pan of water comes to the boil, add lots of salt and cook for the amount of time specified on the packet. Add chili flakes, sugar, paprika to tomatoes. When pasta has finished cooking, drain and combine with the sauce. Serve in bowls with a generous helping of grated parmesan
